The revolutionary Precision Elliptical Gearing design is patented in a number of countries around the world and is the soul of the Okuma mid to upper-end spinning reel range.

The Precision Elliptical Gearing design uses elliptical shaped oscillation gears which provide exceptional line lay, improved smoothness and maximum long-life durability. The Precision Elliptical Gearing gears are always engaged and provide a very smooth spool stroke, eliminating the spool from jumping as commonly found on many reels.

for the price Okuma is hard to be and right up there with Penn
These reels are smooth and great looking and rival most on the market comparative with price.If i were trying to fish on a budget, this is where i go! I do wish the drag was heavier. I caught my first channel cat ( about 10lbs)in the Hudson river on an Okuma while kayak fishing and it was a bit hard to get in. I am used to using penn spinners for bait wand whatnot but these are hard to beat for the price.
ProsGreat looking and SMOOTH!!!!!!!!!
ConsMore drag please. Also whether you are there for the sport of it all or table fare!

Nice reel with smooth drag
Bought a pair of them to put out flat line baits, while bottom fishing. Handled a few long runs from kingfish nicely.
ProsSmooth drag, comfortable handle
